Scholes hails ex-Man Utd teammate Beckham

Paul Scholes has paid tribute to former Manchester United teammate David Beckham after he announced his retirement yesterday.

The PSG midfielder confirmed his decision yesterday.

Scholes, who is also retiring at the end of this season, said: "It's a sad day but hopefully David is happy with what he's done.

"From the start you knew the quality he had, and the professionalism. His range of passing and his free-kicks were brilliant and that was no accident - he was out there practising all day long. He was a top, top player and it has been great to play with him.

"That's all our year finished now. I think there's only Ryan Giggs, who was a year older than us, left still going as strong as ever."
